Since no ankle biter you can enjoy the space of the long loadbin.

All the 2.8 has more than the 2.4 is around 20kw and a few airbags. If you lust after.mkre power, a Unichip(and only a Unichip!) will sort you out!

Re: 22RE head gas flow and cam? Any suggestions?

The 22R responds VERY well to gasflowing and a mild cam. I'm sure you have been visiting www.lcengineering.com? First do a branch and 57mm freeflow exhaust and if you still lust after more power, go the gasflow route. I would keep the original carb, I don't think the gains with efi is worth the costs.
